Swiftfox is a customized firefox built for each individual cpu type: Pentium, AthlonXP, Celeron, etc. Being compiled this way, it is faster.

However, the binaries are not freely distributable

ok i get it now but i found out the reason it opened a firefox window is because i didn't close all instances of firefox first
